active in open data. and new york, again with 3 in 1 is doing smart analytics. i think that's what you'll see happening as well, government starts to become smarter, make better decisions, better policies. this term algorithmic regulation, which means you can have laws and policies in the cities determined by data and not just what we think is best, but what's actually best. so, as cities keep catching on and more and more with the data, you're going to see some really interesting things coming out. >> cool. while we're talking about data, another part of the announcement today was also motion loft making private data available within sort of that initiative and that website wrieri'd like to hear a little more, john, about kind of deciding to share that data with the city and also a lot of times especially with other companies you see them being very protective of their data. there is a lot of value there. how do you sort of balance, protecting the value of your data and commercial viability versus making it available to the public? >> so, we have a unique problem, i think, to a lot of
in few town, connecticut. >> hello, i am mike huckabee. i am coming to you live in new york city . our nation is in shock over the senseless and unspeakable tragedy that took place in newtown, connecticut. the shooter killed his mother in her home and then to a elementary cool where he gund down 20 opportunitis and teach ares before he took his own life . molly? nthe community has been pulling together since this horrific massacre. there are numerous vigils and we are getting word that president obama is it joining the community and an interfaith vigil. ther joining together and healing the community. it is it a difficult and long road ahead when you think about the victims in this case. and so many lives lost and 12 little girls and eight little boys and six women. two of the women killed were so young. beginning their careers in education . in their twens and one just 30 years old and all of these women trying to protect the children. the youngest victim named noah. you look at the list of the children's names and the names you hear in classrooms all over america. charlotte, and anna
about how guns end up on the streets. what was so compelling to me in this new york times article is understanding kids, gangs and guns. we don't seem to understand how so many guns end up on the streets. many borrowed from friends and family, which it turns out is the case in this shooting where it's his mother's guns that end up killing these children. >> that's right. we have a belief that people are going to stores and either buying them at stores and bringing them back or straw purchasers and buying in bulk, getting them to the hands of kids. our gun laws are targeted to those problems. more than 40% of guns come from friends and family into the hands of shooters. it's an extraordinary figure. how do we stop that? public awareness, social services. i read a statistic that said less than 1% of our fill ant pi goes toward criminal justice. that is extraordinarily woeful. you need a comprehensive package which you are targeting gun laws. you have to raise awareness. you have to get to kids young. what are the consequences? >> governor, i want to bring you in on the comprehensive
are everywhere. we want to you remember this -- just last month, this new york city police officer made news by offering a homeless man in times square a pair of boots on a cold night. or this -- a tennessee boy who helped his brother in a wheelchair compete in a triathlon, helping him achieve his dream to cross a finish line. >>> or the football team at one arizona high school who protected this fresh han with special needs from bullies. and just this weekend, there's a texas cop who wrapped $100 bill in a traffic ticket he gave to one struggling dad. just one of the encouraging moments of humanity we have seen this year. it's important to keep in mind there's still good in the world even when tragic things happen. >>> what could prompt one to carry out such horrific acts, many questions will never be answered. we'll talk with an expert in criminal behavior. erin burnett joins us, next. sen. i have a cold, and i took nyquil, but i'm still "stubbed" up. [ male announcer ] truth is, nyquil doesn't unstuff your nose. what? [ male announcer ] it doesn't have a decongestant. no way. [ male annou
in this country over gun control. president obama promising once again, quote, meaningful action. new york city mayor, a staunch gun control advocate, michael bloomberg who endorsed president obama for presidency, says the issue is his now. >> the president campaigned in '08 on a gun control began, and the only legislation that the president has signed since then, one is the right to carry a gun in national parks where our kids play, and one is the right to carry guns on amtrak. i assume that's to stop the rash of train robberies which stopped back in the 1800s. >> joining me now is jonathan -- i want to put a null screen here, this is from the president of the brady center, and he said this in part, i won't read everything there, but he said in part, we genuinely believe this one is different. it's different because no decent human being can look at a tragedy like this and be outraged by the fact that it can happen in our nation and because this time we're really poised to harness that outrage and create a focused exchange. we know that the outrage and the sadness unfortunately, it will dissip
need, it is based on a median income calculation. and as a result of at, states like new york or california has a lot more poor people and also has a lot of rich people, so it doesn't get the same break. you get over 60% reimbursement from the feds. you get 50, you get -- i think it i you get 60. i can't remember everybody's numbers. i tried to educate myself. whereas new york, we only get 50. makes a big difference. pat moynihan who always tried to change the formulas ended up saying it is all james madison's fault. but i think that there are a couple of ings that are terribly, terribly important and don't contradict anything that you all said, weon't have a very good way of measuring adequacy of our infrastructure. we know that the chinese spend eight times a higher percentage of their gdp in infrastructure as we do in this country, and we know that that's got to make us less competitive. i think i learned from the people at the chamber here that cost of moving goods in the united states is greater in absolute dollars than it is in europer asia. therefore adding to our lack
, but it was reported previously that perhaps it was an altercation, again, and lieutenant paul vance, new yorking that down. as we learn more about the victims of this tragedy in midtown community is coming together to support each other as well. ♪ emotional vigils continued tonight and today. and president obama will travel to newtown to meet with the victim's families and peter, what can you tell us. >> kelly, i can tell you that around here, it's still, it's very hard for folks to deal with especially since yesterday we found out that 16 of the 26 victims inside sandy hook elementary school were born in 2006, another four born in 2005 and there have been memorials popping up. and the park we're sang there. a group of sandy hook elementary school students in the school when it was evacuated, in the firehouse, they were holding a yard sale selling their toys and their things, trying to raise money for the affected families, really for their classmates. there have been many more folks in this area, lit candles and hung posters or balloons and many, many more have attended vigils and a very touc
in new york and new jersey instead. neil: even leaving that issue aside, make better accountability. if we had the inspector general for t.a.r.p. keeping track of how it was supposed to be a bank rescue pile of money that was a solar projects and what have you, who is keeping track of it? it gets back to the issue, we discussed it before, americans have big hearts, want to help people when they are in trouble, but we ado wantto see money pissed away in the process not getting to the people we reached out there. >> it's deeper than that; right? if money is flying around from the federal government, people assume work's getting done distracting from recovery efforts if you throw money out the door to smithsonian and pele claiming they need landscaping wherever. this is an idea we're paying for what we get, and we are not. if we have to help people recovering from disaster, we have to be serious about going it rather than allowg it to be a slush fund which is whatis set up to do. neil: up to eight-something billion of this moneyallocated to -- for future projects to make them mo weathe
culture. in san francisco, a greeting to a stranger is likely to be returned n new york, ignored and in los angeles responded to with frigid rage. [laughter] likewise, of course, there's our beautiful american culture. it can be found most readily in our jokes, puns or illusions and the illusions of stand-up comedy or television commercials. they're the most powerful and cohesive. here's a great television commercial we saw at the super bowl. there's a holocaust of some time, a city's buried in rubble. later tough trucks of the manufacturer's brand emerge one by one, and the truck drivers get out to congratulate each other, all glad to be alive having had the wisdom to purchase so great a truck. and one survivor says to another, have a twinkie. [laughter] so what do we have here, but an illusion to a magnificent american myth; an urban legend taken from the very schoolyard where we've told ourselves for 50 years twinkies have a shelf life of 10 million years. [laughter] so why might people enjoy buying the truck? they were united in the most heavy of experiences, which is belongi
